Less labour, more love

Turn the Flow Key and watch as pure, fresh honey flows right out of the hive and into your jar.

No mess, no fuss, no heavy lifting, and no expensive processing equipment.

Through the clear end-frame view, you can see when the honey is ready without opening up the hive.

The extraction process is so gentle, the bees barely notice at all.

Of course there is more to beekeeping than harvesting honey. You still need to look after your bees and do all the normal things to keep your hives happy and healthy. If you’re new to beekeeping you'll quickly find it’s a fascinating, rewarding and addictive hobby. There is always more to learn.

Our revolutionary Flow system makes the extraction process far less stressful for the bees and so much easier for the beekeeper.

LEARN HOW FLOW WORKS

"There has to be a better way!"

Many years ago, I went down to one of my beehives, which I knew was a pretty wild hive. It was getting on towards evening and a bit of a grey day, so not the best time for beekeeping!

So I put on the bee veil my grandma made me and pressed the gaffer tape back on the mesh that covered the rips in it. Then I put on my glove, (I couldn’t find the second one). I fired up the smoker and blew plenty of smoke into the hive.

When I opened the lid my suspicions were confirmed. The bees weren’t happy about being disturbed. I pulled my sleeve over my gloveless hand, blew some more smoke into the hive, and pulled some nice frames of honey out.

The hive was packed with bees and it was near impossible to get the honey out without squashing lots of them. I really don’t like squashing bees! They don't like it either and the bees became grumpier and started to sting me through my beekeeper suit.

I put the hive back together as quickly as I could, squashing more bees as the lid went on and ended up running away across the field, thinking, "There has to be a better way!"
So, my dad Stuart and I set to work on a decade long task of inventing the beekeeper's dream.

We are so happy to say that now you can harvest the honey with virtually no disturbance to the bees. It's a dream come true for us.

After a decade of work, it's been so exciting to be finally bringing our Flow Hive invention to the world.
